Don’t Look Before You Leap


CHAPTER 1

1 July 1978 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Prem means love, renu means dust – love dust.

But once dust is of love it is divine. Love transforms it: then it is no more dust; it is dust only if love
is missing. If love is missing then man is nothing but dust. Once love enters into life, dust becomes
aflame with the divine. The only transforming force is love.
Prem means love, shikha means flame – a love flame. Love happens like a flame: it is a flame in the
heart. It is fire, although cool. It is fire, it burns, but it gives a new life too. It is death and resurrection
both.
Veet means beyond, manohar means man – beyond man. Man is a paradox: he can only be man
when he surpasses himself Man is not born as man but only as an opportunity. One can be, one
can miss it too. It is not a certainty, it is not a given fact – it is only a potentiality, and there is every
possibility to miss it. The majority of people miss it, and the fundamental reason for their missing is
that they think that they are already man. Nobody is born as man. The form is there, but the soul is
not. The body is there, but the spirit is lacking.
So as man finds himself, he has to continuously transcend it. In that very transcendence, he really
becomes a man; that is the paradox. By continuously transcending, one arrives at one’s reality.
I call it a paradox because the being is revealed only through becoming. Man’s way to being is
through becoming. Never take yourself for granted – that’s where millions are stuck.
A rose bush is born as a rose bush, but not man! A camel is born as a camel, but not man. Man
has some speciality about him. He is born as a surpassing, as a transcending energy. There is no
end to his growth, he can go on growing; this is an infinite process.
